Portugal holidays are back on!
Brits can now travel to the European country without facing 14-day quarantine when they return home.
The same can’t be said for other destinations, which have been removed as travel corridors due to spikes in coronavirus cases.
From Saturday, those travelling from Croatia, Austria and Trinidad and Tobago will now have to stay home for a fortnight after they land.
Some are angered by the changes – and have made plans to rush back to the UK – as they had not prepared to quarantine.
As guidelines can be altered so suddenly, the government has warned all holidaymakers to prepare for potential self-isolation.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: "As with all air bridge countries, please be aware that things can change quickly.
"Only travel if you are content to unexpectedly 14-day quarantine if required (I speak from experience!)"
Scotland's Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf echoed these thoughts.
He said: "We cannot emphasise enough that if people choose to travel abroad, they must be aware that quarantine requirements may change while they are away.”
He added: "The same can be said for the rules within the country or territory people are travelling to.
"If people do travel from any country that is not exempt from the requirements, they will be required to quarantine for 14 days on return, please check the Scottish Government website for more information on what this means.
"As I have said previously, we do not make these decisions lightly, but suppressing the virus and protecting public health is vital."
